Just because the seller has 'agreed' to give a refund does not mean they have actually processed the PayPal refund system.
If the buyer hasn't started a request it can drag on and on.
I have seen a few occasions when PayPal do hold the money for all sorts of reasons. Did they send you back an e-cheque?
Most common reasons for lack of repayment is if the seller refunds via a credit card or through their bank. It can take a week that way, which is what I try to avoid wherever possible.
